Hundreds expected to attend first annual sustainability conference on Oct. 10

Participants must register to attend the one-day Fayetteville Sustainability Summit on Oct. 10 in the Fayetteville Town Center. Breakout sessions will spill over into the University of Arkansas' nearby Continuing Education Center.

The summit is designed to teach local and state leaders more about what Fayetteville and other cities are doing to reduce their impact on the environment. A product fair will showcase a number of different products and inform people about making better purchasing decisions, Coleman said.

Sponsors include Wal-Mart, CH2M Hill, KNWA, WinRock International, and Procter & Gamble.

The Fayetteville Sustainability Summit has been organized by the city with the support of the UA, Fayetteville Visitors Bureau and the Fayetteville Economic Development Council.
